Plan Commission Workshops

About Plan Commission Workshops

Appointment to a local government’s plan commission is an important commitment carrying significant responsibilities. The decisions reached can affect community and regional functioning, as well as character, for decades or more.

A plan commission workshop can help bridge the knowledge-experience gap and increase commissioner confidence. Extension Waukesha County holds a plan commission workshop approximately every 18 months. Each workshop addresses one or more specific issues.
